THE INDOOR CHAMPS ARE CROWNED
Friday October 21, 2016 - Email this article to a friend

The British Indoor Snowboard & Freeski Championships 2016 has taken place at the Chill Factore in Manchester. Four new champs have prevailed. UPDATED

It was perhaps  the most progressive park ever seen at an indoor champs.

The Brits Indoor offers a chance for the younger riders to shine.

Once again, the under 12 and under 16s categories were hotly contested, and The BRITS continues to unearth potential talent, and some of the young riders may go on to compete at the highest level.

In the Women's freeski competition as Kirsty Muir took her first overall crown at just 12 years old.

She comes from Aberdeen and has potential but few could have placed her on the top step before her teenage years.

With young British women such as overall BRITS Slopestyle champs Katie Ormerod and Katie Summerhayes already leading the way on the world stage, Kirsty is all set to follow in their footsteps.

In the Jam format 8 men and 4 women took on the final zone in the snowboard competition.

The largest indoor kicker we have seen in recent years teed Angus Malloch up perfectly for the biggest trick of the day and the win.

Judge Jamie Keeble described the final as the toughest judging decision he has ever had to make, with Scott Walsh, Billy Cockrell and Lewis Moore all in contention for medals.

But a decision had to be made and Walsh and Cockrell took silver and bronze respectively.

In the women's category, it was another young gun who took home the gold.

At just 15 years old, Maisie Hill is another one to watch.

Last year's champ Cerys Allen didn't stomp everything she wanted in the final, but still took the silver medal and added yet another medal to her collection and will look to move back up the podium in Laax.

Third on the podium was Amber Cordingly who took home the bronze.

There were 12 finalists in the ski event.

As it became apparent that Muir would seal her first win, another young talent was grabbing his.

Justin Taylor-Tipton took the men's gold.
